accessibility – Create tagged and structured PDF files
The accessibility package is intended to create tagged, structured PDF documents from LaTeX source code. It allows to produce tagged PDF output following Adobe’s PDF-1.5 and 1.6 specifications.
This package is predominantly targeted at documents produced using the KOMA-Script document classes.
However, the author told us towards the end of June 2020:
“Based on feedback to the ‘accessibility’ package and
discussions with a few folks, I’d like to discourage people
from using the package any more. It’s evident that it’s not
going to work in it’s current form, and I don’t have the skills
or time to update it.
I know the general concept is very important, and so I’m looking at getting support from various funding agencies to employ someone to completely refactor the code in a more future-proof fashion. I’ll coordinate this with the core LaTeX Team once I have more solid ideas.”
